Academic Support and Services

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is interested in every student reaching their full potential. All students can participate in recurring ARC workshops and meet one-on-one with the Learning Specialist, as needed to receive academic coaching. The ARC has books, pamphlets and web resources designed to address Time Management, Study Skills, Test Taking Strategies and APA documentation for students who need additional support. Students have access to writing applications, learn to use library resources, receive help with forming structured study groups and have access to various stress management resources while attending Charles R. Drew University.

For Appointments, please contact Student Services at KoliniColeman@cdrewu.edu

Laptop Loaners are available for currently enrolled CDU students who may be without a computer to continue their education without interruptions. Laptops are available to be checked out a no cost to current students for the Fall 2020 semester. In order to prevent transmission of COVID-19, most campus facilities such as computer labs, will be unavailable. The laptop loaners are an on-going effort to support students who may not have the resources to excel during this temporary remote learning environment.
